Can the $200 egift card be used in the Dell Outlet? It would be nice to buy a $300 tablet with $200 off...

Yes you can. But it wouldn't be $200 off unless you want to say you paid full price for the tv :\

120hz EFFECTIVE refresh rate = 60hz except when interlaced, right?

The most viable info i found (Its from 2013) :
Fake refresh rates: Is your TV really 120Hz? [cnet.com]
excerpt concerning Vizio in particular towards 2013 models:
Vizio SPS
"SPS (Scenes Per Second) combines advanced 120Hz technology with scanning backlight for enhanced detail." In other words, a "240Hz SPS" is a 120Hz TV with a scanning backlight. On the Web site, the company says things like "240Hz Effective Refresh Rate," "120Hz Effective Refresh Rate," and "Enhanced with smooth motion and backlight scanning for amazing sharpness," so it's being fairly upfront about what's going on...sort of. Here's what David found out with this year's E420i-A1: "Vizio actually uses the term '120Hz effective refresh rate' on this and other TVs, including the E601i-A3. But while that set has the smoothing and motion resolution we expect from a 120Hz TV, the E0i-A1 series has neither. That's why we're sticking with the '60Hz' specification on the table above, despite what Vizio says." In other words, Vizio has two TVs, both labeled with "120Hz effective refresh rate," but one is a 60Hz panel with backlight scanning and the other is a true 120Hz panel.

The review was for a 55" model Vizio. Not the 48" being shown here. Looks like Amazon runs all the reviews into one place. It is a shame they can't sort out the review issues. But I would take reviews from any end-user with a grain of salt. As 99% of the time it is the end user that is at fault.

But Vizio tech support wants us to try moving the 55" TV to diff locations in the house and if that doesnt work, call up Comcast to change the encryption type and if that doesnt work then they will send a service technician to our house.

Agreed, I bought a Vizio Smart Tv and all I had to do was initially setup using Ethernet cable, and do a software update and then Wifi worked. This was a couple years back.

Silly question but do these tv's have ethernet port as well? I like being wired MUCH better than wireless. If you have the ethernet socket in the wall behind the tv it's great!

1. power cable + 1 ethernet cable = cable tv, wireless to my surface pro etc etc

Work flawless with just 2 wires and no other BS.

EDIT: Yes it has ethernet port on the bottom. Sweet. Now I just have to hurry up and finish my master suite so I can put something like this on the wall!

Has anyone tried to do more than one of these dell promos on any one item?

Can I order three and get three GCs? One order? Three Separate? Different accounts?

You can get three gift cards, but you're better off making three separate orders. Also take screen shots of your cart that show the gift card you're due, in case you have to fight later. Use a discover card for an extra 5% and make sure you sign into your dell advantage for another 5%.

Got this from Wally World but tempted to return and rebut it from Dell. How is Dell delivery for tvs? White glove/do they call ahead, etc?

I bought one of these from Costco and returned it within the week. I could not get a decent picture from one channel to the next. The default setup looks almost but not quite right and (for me at least) no amount of tinkering could get it looking the way I wanted. I returned it for a Samsung and never been happier.

That's just me, maybe I'm too picky.

It's brown glove...if it's cold enough for the UPS guy to have gloves on.
